Carlos “UK” Hernandez is an editorial, beauty, commercial Photographer based in NYC.
Born in Venezuela, UK has traveled the globe photographing and exploring, finding inspiration and bringing this worldly sophistication into the composition and design of his work.
Much of his created aesthetic is rooted in a world of his own of which he has titled “The Concrete Empire”, incorporating visual and environmental allusions drawn from Royalty, Mythology, exotic locales and metropolitan sophistication.
Having studied Mechanical Engineering prior to finding his place behind the camera, it comes as no surprise that UK’s eye for geometry and dynamics combine to give each shot a visual medium of story, color and texture.
UK’s work has been seen in Vogue, Out Magazine, Glassbook, Lucy’s, Caras, Bello, Ocean Drive, Ellements, among others through different places he’s lived in, from Venezuela, Panama and NYC where is resides. He’s portrayed downtown personalities, NY nightlife legends, as well as shooting campaigns from NY Fashion week designers featured in Vogue magazine such as Naeem Khan https://tinyurl.com/vogueukm
